Yep, been getting back in touch with Griswold.  I have a charming listing and recently put the miracle house under deposit in this fine town (miracle post shall follow at a later date…it’s a good story).

I have been doing a great deal of cost per square foot analysis and strenuous scrutiny of the inventory.  There are 85 houses currently on the market (and I have physically seen some 1/3 of them); I know there to be some excellent values and opportunities.  Also interesting, Griswold has had 24 closings in the last two months which is very good.

Here is how the town’s real estate is holding up:

Currently 85 Active listings              Range of value:  $49,900 to $550,000

Currently 13 pending listings           Range of value:  $139,900 to $468,000

24 Closed in last 60 days                 Range of value:  $29,000 to $403,000

Average days on Market is 57.29 (a good number!)

Average sales price is $214,297.91
